|Millipede Doing Intervals|

Man alive! That 26.2 meter marathon is a GRIND!
I was doing stellar time until I hit a wall at the 20-meter mark.
It was all I could do to tell my legs (and legs and legs and legs and legs and legs...ah, you get my drift!) to keep going.
On sheer will power alone, I finished.
14 hours, 23 minutes, 38 seconds.
Not anywhere near elite performance, but a personal best nonetheless.
And I finished. That's what truly counts! I FINISHED!
Up next: The Hawaiian Multi-Pede Triathlon!
I'm fine-tuning my training...a second interval session each week at Kapaa High School; running in sand at Kealia Beach; hill training up on the Sleeping Giant; and LSD (long, slow distance) running on Sundays around Lihue Airport.
Just wait and see!
The Kenyan centipedes CAN EAT MY DUST!
